     I know one of my pet peeves as a mommy is finding my little man's sippy cup spilled in my purse or diaper bag. It is even worse when I see it leaking all over the backseat of our new car. Philips Avent has solved that problem with the Philips Avent My Penguin Sippy Cup. These amazing cups are not just adorable, they are completely leak free! The bright colors and penguins are going to keep your little one happy, and you are going to love the graduated measurements so you can keep track of your little one's liquid intake.  These super cute cups are made for ages six months and up.

     As a vegetarian I rely on Nature Made to fill the gaps in my nutrition. Since I don't always get all the vitamins and minerals I need, so I start my day with Nature Made, that way I know my body is always getting everything it needs. Nature Made is the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements* to help support nutritional gaps*, so I know I am getting the best available to me. The Nature Made Energy Metabolism supplements are what I use to get through my day. Some people rely on coffee, some on soda, I love Nature Made. These are amazing B vitamins that keep me from feeling sluggish, even mid-afternoon! When I am constantly running errands and tending to three kids, I need all the help I can get. Nature Made gives me that all natural boost that I rely on! 
     Everyone needs help getting the proper vitamins and nutrients in their diets, and Nature Made is there to make it easier. Since many of us decided to start 2016 with getting healthier, we have all had a little over a month to focus on our wellness. For our family, we have decided to introduce smoothies for breakfast and healthier dinner options. It has been wonderful for everyone, even the kids! If you didn't quite make it this long with your resolution, or if you never made one in the first place, it is never too late to start focusing on your health!

Every parent has a different view on education, and that is a piece of advice to keep in mind. Mine is that I want my kids to go to the best school possible, but others prefer the homeschooling option. Until recently, I had never given it much thought. But, I have started thinking about it more, and I can see the benefits. I still don’t know if I will have the guts to take the kids out of school and do it myself. If I ever pluck up the courage, here are the things I will keep in mind.
